What is IIoT?

IIot, or the Industrial Internet of Things, is the use of technology to enhance manufacturing and industrial processes. IIoT introduces basic manufacturing machines to powerful data technologies and teaches them how to speak to one another for a seamless, intelligent manufacturing process.

How Does IIoT Work?

A network of devices connects with communication technology that forms a much larger and smarter system that monitors, collects, exchanges, and analyzes data, providing you with valuable information to make smarter business decisions.

An IIoT system is comprised of:

  • Data communications platforms, like the Cloud
  • Intelligent assets – think applications, controllers, sensors, and security components – that can sense, communicate, and store information about themselves
  • Analytics and applications that generate business information from raw data – think ERP software
  • People
